CHARTER OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, 



George, the Second, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ire- 
land, king, defender of tlje faith, &c. To all whom these present letters shall 
come, greeting : 

Whereas, on the twenty-second day of April, in the year of our Lord, one thou- 
sand six hundred eighty and six, Thomas Dongan, then lieutenant governor and 
vice admiral of New York, and its dependencies, under our predecessor, James, 
(the second) then king of England, &c., did make and execute a certain grant, 
or instrument in writing, under the seal of the province of New York, in these 
words following : 

1. Thomas Dongan, lieutenant governor and vice admiral of New York and its 
dependencies, under his majesty James, (the second) by the grace of God, of 
England, Scotland, France, and Ireland, king, defender of the faith, supreme 
lord and proprietor of the colony and province of New York, and its dependen- 
cies in America, &c. To all to whom this shall come, sendeth greeting : — 
Whereas, the city of New York, is an ancient city within the said province, and 
the citizens of the said city have anciently been a body politic and corporate ; 
and the citizens of the said city have held, used, and enjoyed, as well within the 
same, as elsewhere, in the said province, divers and sundry rights, liberties, pri- 
vileges, franchises, free customs, pre-eminences, advantages, jurisdictions, emolu- 
ments, and immunities, as well by prescription as by charter, letters patent, 
grants, and confirmations, not only of divers governors and commanders-in-chief, 
in the said province, but also of several governors, directors, generals, and com- 
TOanders-in'Chief, of the Nether Dutch nation, whilst the same was, or has been

under their power and subjection. And whereas divers lands, tenements, and 
hereditaments, jurisdictions, liberties, immunities, and privileges, have heretofore 
been given and granted, or mentioned to be given and granted, to the citizens 
and inhabitants of the said city, sometimes by the name of schout, burgomasters, 
and schephens of the city of New Amstei'dam ; and sometimes by the name of 
the mayor, aldermen, and commonalty of the city of New- York ; sometimes by 
the name of the mayor, aldermen, and sheriff of the city of New York ; some- 
times by the name of the mayor and aldermen of the city of New York ; and by 
divers other names, as by their several letters patents, chartei's, grants, wri- 
tings, records, and minuments, amongst other things, may more fully appear. 
And whereas the citizens and inhabitants of the said city have erected, built, and 
appropriated, at their own proper costs and charges, several public buildings, 
accommodations, and conveniences for the said city. Thai is to say, the city 
hall, or stat-house, with the ground thereunto belonging, two market-houses, the 
bridge into the dock, the wharves or docks, with their appurtenances, and the 
new burial-place without the gate of the city ; and have established and settled 
one ferry from the said city of New York to Long Island, for the accommodation 
and convenience of passengers, the said citizens and travellers. 

And whereas, several the inhabitants of the said city, and of Manhattan's 
Island, do hold from and under his most sacred majesty respectively, as well by 
several and respective letters patents, grants, charters, and conveyances, made 
and granted by the late lieutenants, governors, or commanders-in-chief, of the 
said province, as otherwise, several and respective messuages, lands, tenements, 
and hereditaments, upon Manhattan's Island, and in the city of New York, afore- 
said, and as well as the said mayor, aldermen, and commonalty of the said city, 
and their successors, as also, the inhabitants of the said Manhattan's Island, and 
the city of New York, aforesaid, and their heirs and assigns respectively, may 
hold, exercise, and enjoy, not only such and the same liberties, privileges, and 
franchises, rights, royalties, free-customs, jurisdictions and immunities, as^they 
have anciently had, used, held and enjoyed ; but also such pubhc buildings, ac- 
commodations, conveniences, messuages, tenements, lands, and hereditaments, in 
the said city of New York, and upon Manhattan's Island aforesaid, which, as 
aforesaid, have been by the citizens and inhabitants erected and built, or which

2. Know ye, therefore. That I, the said Thomas Dongan, by virtue of the 
commission and authority unto me given, and power in me residing, at the hum- 
ble petition of the now mayor, aldermen, and commonalty of the said city of New 
York, and for divers other good causes and considerations, me thereunto moving, 
have given, granted, ratified, and confirmed, and by these presents, for and on 
the behalf of his most sacred majesty aforesaid, his heirs, successors, and as- 
signs, do give, grant, ratify, and confirm unto the said mayor, aldermen, and 
commonalty of the said city, all and every such and the same liberties, privileges, 
franchises, rights, royalties, free customs, jurisdictions, and imnumities, which

bad, held, used, or enjoyed, Provided always, That none of the said liberties,

say, The aforesaid city hall, or stat-house, with the ground thereunto belonging,

Witness our right trusty and V/ell beloved cousin Edward Viscount Cornbury, 
captain-general and governor-in-chief in and over our province of New York 
aforesaid, and territories thereon depending in America, and vice-admiral of the 
same, &c., in council at our fort in New York, the nineteenth day of April, in 
the seventh year of our reign, Annoq. Domini, one thousand seven hundred 
and eight. 

By virtue, or under pretext whereof, the said inhabitants and citizens of the 
city of New York have held and enjoyed, or have claimed to hold and enjoy, 
and still do hold or claim to hold, the ferry, vacant land, perquisites, profits, 
privileges, powers and other premises in the before recited letters patent men- 
tioned and intended to be thereby granted. And whereas, besides all the 
aforesaid particulars in the said grant or instrument made in the aforesaid year 
of our Lord one thousand six hundred eighty and six, and in the before recited 
letters patent of Queen Anne, mentioned or intended to be thereby granted, the 
citizens and inhabitants of the said city of New York, have anciently held or 
claimed to hold, use and enjoy divers and sundry other rights, privileges, fran- 
chises, pre-eminences, advantages, jurisdictions, emoluments, powers, profits, 
immunities, lands, tenements and other hereditaments, as well by prescription 
as by divers grants and confirmations of and from divers governors, lieutenant- 
governors and commanders-in-chief of the said province, by the name of mayor, 
aldermen and commonalty of the city of New York, and by divers other 
names, styles and titles and otherwise. 

And whereas, divers questions, doubts, opinions, ambiguities, controversies 
and debates have arisen and been made as well upon and concerning the 
validity and force of the said recited grant or writing, dated in the year of our

patent of Queen Anne, as upon all and every the other grants and confirmations 
of divers governors, lieutenant-governors and commanders-in-chief, made to our 
city of New York, as aforesaid, by reason of the variety of names, styles, titles 
and incorporations aforesaid, and by reason that the before recited grant or 
instrument, dated in the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and eighty 
six, and the other grants and confirmations of divers governors, lieutenant 
governors and commanders-in-chief, were made in the governors' own names 
respectively, when they should have been made in the respective names, styles 
and titles of former kings and queens, our royal predecessors, under whom they 
were governors, lieutenant-governors or commanders-in-chief respectively, and 
by reason, as some suggest and say, that the said city, or inhabitants or citizens 
thereof, never were well, regularly or legally incorporated, and for want thereof 
none of all the said grants, confirmations, instruments, or letters patent, hereio- 
before mentioned, could take effiect of operate ; and for divers other defects in 
all, some or one of the aforesaid grants, confirmations and writings ; and also 
upon the validity and force of the prescription aforesaid. And whereas, our 
well-beloved subjects, the mayor, aldermen and commonalty of our said city of

jurisdictions, emoluments, immunities, lands, tenements, public buildings and

of the oily of New York, as otherwise, to the advancement of the said city in 
the number of its buildings and inhabitants, whereby the said city is become a 
considerable seaport, and exceedingly necessary and useful to our kingdom of

incorporated, or whether they have been or were heretofore incorporated or 
not), into one body politic and corporate, by the name of the mayor, aldermen

In testimony whereof, we have caused these our letters to be made patent,

ince of New York, and the province of New Jersey, and territories depending 
thereon in America, and vice-admiral of the same, &c., at our Port George in 
New York, the fifteenth day of January, in the fourth year of our reign. 



May it please your Excellency, 

I HAVE perused this Charter, and find nothing therein prejudicial to the in- 
terest of his Majesty 

R. BRADLEY, Attorney-General. 
To his Excellency, The Governor of the province of New York, &c. 

16th January, 1730. 

MEMORANDUM. 

This beprint of the Charter has been made from one printed by order of the 
Common Council in 1832, and that was taken from a prior copy certified many 
yeai-s before by T. Wortman, as city clerk, to be a true copy. The editor has 
compared the edition of 1832, with the Charter as reprinted in 1793 by Hugh 
Gaine, and certified to be a true copy by Robert Benson, clerk. That was the 
best printed, and probably the most accurate copy of the Charter that has ap- 
peared.

BOARD OF SUPERVISOriS.. 

The act of the Legislature, passed April 15, 1857, altered the mode in which 
the Board of Supervisors of the county of New York, were constituted, and pre- 
scribed the annual selection, at the Charter election, of twelve gentlemen to 
compose the Board. By a supplementary act passed April 17, 1858, the terms 
of the Supervisors were continued, and a classification of the members ordered, 
which divided the Board into six classes, with terms varying from one to six 
years, each class to consist of one member elected and one appointed at the 
election first held ; and thereafter two Supervisors to be annually chosen at the 
county election to serve for six years each.

and removal from office of each officer of said police force, shall be particularly 
defined and prescribed by the rules and regulations of the Board of Police, in 
accordance with the constitution and laws of this state ; provided, however, that 
no person shall be so appointed to office, or hold office in the police force afore- 
said, who cannot read and write the English language, or who is not a citizen of 
the United States, or who shall not have resided within the said " The Metro- 
politan Police District" during a term of five yeai's next preceding his appoint- 
ment, or who shall ever have been convicted of crime ; and provided that no 
person shall be removed therefrom, except upon written charges preferred 
against him to the Board of Police, and after an opportunity shall have been 
afforded him of being heard in his defence ; and provided, that whenever any 
vacancy shall occur as inspector of police, the same shall be filled by an appoint- 
ment from among the persons then in office as sergeants of police ; and a like 
vacancy in the office of sergeants of police shall be filled by appointment from 
among the persons then in office as patrolmen. 

§ 8. The members of the police force of the said " The Metropolitan Police 
District" shall possess, in every part of the state of New York, all the common 
law and statutory powers of constables, except for the service of civil process ; 
and any warrant for search or arrest issued by any magistrate of the state of 
New York, may be executed in any part of the state by any member of the 
police force of the said " The Metropolitan Police District," without any backing 
or indorsement of the said warrant, and according to the terms thereof ; and all 
the provisions of sections seven, eight and nine, of chapter two, title two, part 
four of the Revised Statutes in relation to the giving and taking of bail, shall 
apply to this act. The general and deputy superintendents and mspectors or 
captains of police, having just cause to suspect that any felony has been, or is 
being, or is about to be committed within any building, or on board of any ship, 
boat or vessel within the said " The Metropolitan Police District," may enter 
upon the same at all hours of the day and night, to take all necessary measures 
for the effectual preservation or detection of all felonies, and may take then and 
there into custody all persons suspected of being concerned in such felonies, 
and also may take charge of all property, which he or they shall have then 
and there just cause to suspect has been stolen. 

§ 9. If the general superintendent of police shall report in writing to the Board 
of Police, that there are good grounds for believing any house or room within 
the said " The Metropolitan Police District" to be kept or used as a common 
gaming house or cock-pit, and if two or more householders, dwelling within the 
said district, and not belonging to the Metropolitan Police aforesaid, shall make 
oath in writing before any one of the commissioners of police, and annexed to the 
said report, (which oath every commissioner of police is hereby empowered to 
administer, receive and subscribe,) that the premises complained of by the 
general superintendent of police, are commonly reported and believed by the 
deponents to be kept as a common gaming house or cock-pit, it shall be lawful 
for any commissioner of police, by order in writing, to authorize the said general 
superintendent, or either deputy superintendent of police, to enter upon such 
premises, together with such members of the patrol force as shall be directed 



122 

by the said commissioner, by name, to accompany him or them, and, if neces- 
sary, to use force for the purpose of effecting such entry, whether by breaking 
open doors or otherwise, and to take into custody all persons who shall be found 
therein, and destroy all implements of gaming found therein, and forthwith to 
convey the said persons before any magistrate of the district, who shall forth- 
with proceed to hear the proof whether or no any of such persons were in such 
premises for the purpose of gaming ; and if there shall be probable cause for 
believing that any of such persons were so in such premises for the purpose of 
gaming, then the said magistrate shall forthwith order, by due commitment, any 
of the said persons to find good bail, with two householders of the Metropolitan 
Police District as his sureties, conditioned for his appearance at the proper 
criminal court of the county wherein the said premises are situated, haAang juris- 
diction to try misdemeanors, either at the term thereof then in being, or at the 
next term thereof, to answer any indictment which may be found thereat, 
charging him with being in the said premises as a common gambler, or in 
default thereof, the said magistrate shall commit to the common jail or city 
prison of the county for such trial. The said magistrate shall immediately send 
the proofs in writing to the District Attorney of the county, whose duty it shall 
be, in preference to any other case in his office of prosecution for any offence, to 
lay the same before the grand jury of the county, and upon indictment being 
thereupon found, to immediately try the same in preference to every other case, 
subject to the discretion of the court. It shall be sufficient in the said indict- 
ment to charge that the defendant, (naming him,) upon a day certain, and at an 
hour certai% was arrested within a common gaming house and is a common 
gambler. If the jury are satisfied that the premises in which he was arrested 
was kept for purposes of gaming, and that he was present for the purpose of 
gaming, then the said defendant may be convicted as a common gambler. If 
convicted as such common gambler, then the court shall forthwith sentence him 
as for a misdemeanor, to an imprisonment not less than ten days in the jail of 
the county, or penitentiary not exceeding one year, and at hard labor therein, or 
to a fine not less than two hundred and fifty dollars, nor more than one thousand 
dollars. The phrase " purposes of gaming" in this section, shall be taken to 
mean any purpose of playing for wagers of money at any game of chance, by 
whatsoever name the same shall be known. If the said implements of gaming 
seized shall have annexed to the same anything of value, apart from their value 
as such implements, the said thing of value so annexed to the implements order- 
ed to be destroyed, shall be returned to the owner thereof. 

§ 10. It is hereby made the duty of the board of police, for more effectually 
distributing and enforcing its police government and disciphne, to divide the 
said " The Metropolitan Police District" into precincts, not exceeding forty, 
and without regard to county or ward boundaries, and to assign one inspector or 
captain of police, and four sergeants of pohce to each of said precincts. The 
board may, from time to time, establish a station or sub-stations, in each pre- 
cinct, for the accommodation of the police force on duty therein. It may, from 
time to time, detail and change, without regard to, or limitation of, residence, 
inspectors or captiiius, sergeants and patrolmen and doormen, to such parts of 



123 

the district, rivers, creeks and harbors therein, or to such of the police and 
criminal courts, and to the public offices of the government of the cities of New 
York and Brooklyn, and the quarantine and emigration oflBces as it may deem 
advisable. It shall not suspend members of the police force from pay for more 
than thirty days. It shall promulgate all regulations and orders through the 
general superintendent of pohce, who shall take the place of the Mayor of the 
city of New York and of the city of Brooklyn, as being the head of the Police 
Department or force of the said cities, but always subject to the orders and reg- 
ulations of the board of police ; and it shall be the duty of the police force to 
respect and obey the said general superintendent of police as the head and chief 
of the same, subject to the rules and regulations and general orders of the Board 
of Police. 

§ 11. The Board of Police, whenever it shall see fit, shall, on the application of 
any person or persons, showing the necessity thereof, appoint and swear any 
additional number of patrolmen to do duty at any place within " The Metropol- 
itan Police District," at the charge and expense of the person or persons by 
whom the application shall be made ; (but not to exceed the yearly sum 
provided for patrolmen of the force, provided by this act as the general police 
force,) and the patrolmen so appointed shall be subject to the orders of the 
Board of Police, and shall obey the rules and regulations of the Board, and con- 
form to its general discipline, and to such other special regulations as may be 
made, and shall wear such dress or emblem, as the board may direct, and shall, 
during the term of their holding appointment, possess all the powers, privileges 
and duties of the patrol force, heretofore prescribed. The persons so appointed 
may be removed at any time by the Board of police, without assigning cause 
thereof, upon one month's notice of the intention so to do, given to the person or 
persons who applied for the appointment as aforesaid. The Board of Police may 
also, upon any emergency, of riot, pestilence, invasion, or during any day of 
public election or celebration, appoint as many special patrolmen, without pay, 
from among the citizens, as it may deem advisable, and for a specified time, and 
during the term of service of any such special patrolman he shall possess all the 
powers and privileges, and perform all the duties of the patrolmen of the stand- 
ing police force of the district ; but the Board of Police, in making such appoint- 
ments, shall in no way interfere with the force of the lawful command of the 
sheriffs of counties, as now provided for by law, and such special patrol shall 
wear any emblem to be prescribed by the Police Commissioners. 

§ 12. No member of the police force, under penalty of forfeiting the pay which 
may be due to him, shall withdraw or resign from the police force, unless he 
shall have given one month's notice thereof, in writing, to the general superin- 
tendent of police ; and no person who shall ever have been removed from the 
pohce force established by this act, for cause, shall be reappointed by the Board 
of Police to any office in the said police force. 

§ 13. All stolen property, taken by members of the pohce force, shall be kept 
in a place, and by a person to be designated by the Board of Police. Every 
such article of property shall be entered in a book kept for the purpose, together 
with the name of the owner, if ascertained, and the name of the place where 



124 

found, and of the person from whom taken, with the general circumstances, and 
the date of its receipt, and the name of the officer recovering the same. The 
Board of Police shall also cause to be kept general complaint books, in which 
shall be entered every complaint, preferred upon personal knowledge of the cir- 
cumstance thereof, with the name and residence of the complainant. It shall 
also cause to be kept books for the registry of lost, missing or stolen property, 
for the general convenience of the pubhc and of the police force of the district. 
It shall also cause to be kept a book ofrecordsof " The Metropolitan Pohce Dis- 
trict," wherein shall be entered the name of every member of the police force, 
with his time and place of nativity, the time and place when he became a citizen, 
if he was born out of the United States, his age, his former occupation, number 
of family and residence thereof, the date of appointment or dismissal from office, 
with the cause of the latter. And in every such record, sufficient space shall be 
left against all such entries wherein to make record of the number of arrests 
made by such member of the police force, or of any special services deemed 
meritorious by the inspectors or captains of police. It shall also cause to be 
kept in proper books, the accounts of the treasurer of the Board, and number of 
the several meetings thereof, and all receipts for moneys or warrants or checks 
for moneys, shall be written in books kept for the purpose, and the said receipts 
signed by the person or persons in every case receiving money, warrants, or 
checks from the treasurer. All such books shall be, at all business hours, and 
when not in actual use, open to public inspection. The Board of Police shall 
also cause to be kept and bound all police returns and reports of the districts. 

§ 14. It shall be the duty of the Common Councils of the cities of New York 
and Brooklyn respectively, in accordance with the practice and ordinances now 
existing therein, to provide, at the expense of said cities respectively, all neces- 
sary accomm.odations within such precincts of the said " The Metropolitan Pohce 
District," as shall be contained within the boundaries of the said cities respec- 
tively, for the station-houses required by the Board of Pohce for the accommoda-

1. The harbor police, until the further action of the Board of Police, shall 
consist of twenty-five men, distributed in five boats. 

2. There shall be assigned to each boat five men, of whom one shall be in com- 
mand and be called coxswain, but all shall receive the pay of patrolmen. 

3. There shall be two sergeants, who shall relieve each other, and while on 
duty, shall be in command of all the boats, subject directly to the orders of the 
Deputy Superintendent of New York, under the General Superintendent, to 
whom reports shall be made every morning at nine o'clock, of the duty per- 
formed by the several boats for the preceding twenty-four hours. 

4. Three of the boats shall be on service on the East river and bay, of which 
two shall be on duty from sunset to sunrise, and one from sunrise to sunset. 

Two boats shall be on service on the North river, of which one shall be on 
duty from sunset to sunrise, and one from sunrise to sunset. 

5. The beats of the harbor police shall be from the southerly end of Black- 
well's Island, on the East river, to Governor's Island and the entrance to the ^

tery, on the North river, but the boats may, by order of the sergeant in com- 
mand, or of the General Superintendent or Deputy Superintendent of New York, 
proceed to any part of the harbor on police duty. 

6. Each boat on night duty shall be provided with a signal lantern, to throw 
flashes of red light on shore ; and it shall be the duty of the patrolmen on West 
or South streets, who may see the light, to repair to the place where the boat 
shall land, to render such assistance as may be required. 

7. The boats on night duty shall, in addition to the signal lanterns, carry 
rockets, provided for the purpose, which they shah discharge when requiring 
assistance from the other boats on service ; and it shall be the duty of the other 
boats to repair immediately to that part of the river or bay whence the rocket 
was discharged. 

8. When a boat shall bring prisoners ashore, it shall be the duty of one or 
more of the crew to transfer tliem to the patrolmen on land, who shall convey 
the prisoners to the nearest station-house. 

In addition to the ordinary baton of a patrolman, each member of the harbor 
police shall be armed, while on duty, with a revolving pistol and a cutlass. 

9. Each boat, while on duty, shall be continually moving, unless engaged in 
watching some suspected place or vessel. 

10. The boats shall be painted black on the outside and white on the interior, 
and the word " Police" shall be painted in large black letters on the inside of 
the stern, and in white letters on either bow on the outside of the boats, and

The dress of the Sergeants shall be the same as that of the men, except that 
they shall wear the cap, and other insignia of officers of their rank. The men 
shall wear the patrolmen's shield. 

12. Neither of the boats, under any pretence whatever, whether the crew 
be on or off duty, shall be employed except on the business of the Police, and 
if it shall be proven that the crew, or either of them, or any other person or 
persons, shall use a Police boat for pleasure or fishing, the coxswain in com- 
mand shall be instantly dismissed from the service. 

13. It shall be the duty of the members of the Harbor Police to make them- 
selves thoroughly acquainted with the localities of all junk shops, and the char- 
acter of their occupants, and the character, business, and appearance of all 
boats and vessels plying in the harbor of New York. 

The station of the boats, and the head-quarters of the men shall be hereafter 
determined by the Board.

REGULATIONS. 

All issues of fact already joined and triable in the city of New York, will be 
noticed to the Glerk, and be put on the Galendar for the ensuing January 
Gircuit. 

During the first week of that Gircuit, motions to correct the Galendar may be 
made. 

After that week the Galendar will remain unchanged, and continue the Gal- 
endar for every successive Gircuit, until all the causes on it shall be tried ; 
each Gircuit beginning on the Galendar where the immediately preceding Gircuit 
left off. 

Twenty causes a day, and no more, vdll be called at General and Special 
Terms, and before each Judge at Gircuit, unless otherwise specially ordered. 

No cause will be set down for a particular day at a Gircuit, unless sworn off 
when called, on account of the absence of a witness, and on payment of costs. 

If the trial of a cause shall not be moved by either party, when called in its 
order on the Gircuit Galendar, it will go to the foot of the Galendar, and not be 
called again until it shall be reached in that place. 

All new issues will be noticed for the first day of the next Gircuit, after the 
same shall be joined, and be put in their order at the foot of the permanent 
Calendar. 

After the first week of each Gircuit (during which, motions to correct the 
Galendar may be made), the Galendar of the causes which may have gone 
down at the previous Gircuit, and the new issues, will be entered as part and in 
continuation of the permanent Galendar ; and so on, from court to court, until 
the end of the year. 

These regulations do not affect the question of noticing the causes for trial to 
the opposite party, from court to court, as the statute may require. 



180 

All applications must be made to the Judge assigned for that particular busi- 
ness, excepting matters entirely ex parte. 

SPECIAL CIUCUIT CALENDAR. 

At any Circuit, until further orders, avy causes belonging to either of the 
two following classes, viay be placed on a Special Circuit Calendar, unless the 
trial is likely to occupy more than one hour. 

1st. Where the action is on contract, and the answer merely denies the alle- 
gations in the complaint, without setting up any new matter. 

2d. Where the action is on contract, and new matter is set up in the answer, 
and there shall be reason to believe that the defence is made only for the purpose 
of delay. 

To entitle the cause to be placed on such Calendar, the plaintiff's attorney 
must give a notice of four days to be heard before a Judge at Chambers, that he 
will move to have the cause placed on such Calendar ; and if the motion be 
granted, the cause may be heard on any subsequent Friday. 

If the motion be founded on the belief that the defence is for delay, affidavits 
must be served at the time of notice. 

The plaintiff's attorney must deliver to the Clerk of the Circuit, a like notice 
one day before such Friday, containing also the number of the cause on the 
General Circuit Calendar. 

If the cause shall actually occupy more than one hour on the trial, the trial 
may be suspended at the discretion of the Court, and the cause be put down at 
the foot of the Calendar.

SIXTIETH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, 1858. 

To the Representatives of the New York Fire Department : 

At the time when we last had the pleasure of handing you our Annual 
Report, it was with feelings of anxiety, caused by the derangement in our 



202 

financial circles, that we should not be able to dispense to the many applicants 
for assistance, without encroaching on the Permanent Fund ; but through the 
blessings of a kind Providence, as well as the assistance of those who are ever 
ready to aid the unfortunate, even when they themselves are bound down with 
care, your Trustees have been able to meet all demands made on them the past 
year. 

Daring the commercial crisis, many who had been in previous years con- 
tributors to the Fund were ruined, and lost all their means ; and cases have 
occurred where parties who never knew before what want was, have been com- 
pelled to apply for assistance to the same Fund which they had previously aided 
to maintain. In the exercise of the responsible duties intrusted to our care, we 
have endeavored to discharge them with kindness and impartiality to the 
various recipients, as well as fidelity to the position which we have the honor to 
occupy, and trust that, in our efforts to continue the same pleasing duty, we 
will be aided by those who are ever ready to assist us in our charitable mission 
of protecting our Sick and Disabled Firemen, as well as the widows and orphans 
of our deceased brethi-en. 

Before proceeding to recount the various duties performed by your Trustees, 
we pause to revert to a subject in which we are painfully impressed, not only of 
the propriety, but of a duty we owe to the memory of one, whose recent demise 
is still fresh in the minds of those who knew and appreciated the worth of our 
late friend and Ex-Chief Engineer, Cornelius V. Anderson, a gentleman who, 
for the past twenty years, filled various positions in the Fire Department and 
Municipal Government with credit and honor — one, whose administration at the 
head of the Active Department — by his impartiality and his sterling integrity, 
we are in a very great measm-e indebted for the high standard which the De- 
partment has enjoyed since; and although called from his associates at a period 
when his energies and counsel were exercised for the best interests of our cher- 
ished Institution — nevertheless, we humbly submit to the decrees of an all-wise 
and overruling Providence, and trust that in our loss in being separated will be 
his gain. 

The Treasurer reports there was remaining to the credit of the Department, 
at his last Annual Report, the sum of twenty-seven hundred and fifty-two 
dollars and thirty-four cents ; since which time he has received, from various 
sources, the sum of forty -two thousand and forty- two dollars and thirty-three 
cents — which, in the aggregate, amounts to forty-four thousand seven hundred 
and ninety-four dollars and sixty-seven cents. In that amount is included 
twelve thousand five hundred dollars for Bonds and Mortgages cancelled. The 
disbursements for the same period, have amounted to forty-two thousand nine 
hundred dollars and nineteen cents, including twelve thousand five hundred 
dollars re-invested on Bond and Mortgage, and thirteen hundred and two 
dollars paid the children of George W. Trenchard, deceased, — that amount 
having been invested in the Permanent Fund of the Department as a special 
trust during their minority, the principal payable to them on their arriving at 
the age of twenty-one years ; that sum — thirteen hundred and two dollars — 
having been paid out of the current receipts of the year, has left the Perma- 



203 

uent Fund of the Department unimpaired — leaving a balance in the Butchers' 
& Drovers' Bank, to the credit of the Fire Department Fund, of eighteen 
hundred and ninety-four dollars and forty-eight cents. 

The Permanent Fund, including the Trust Fund, remains unimpaired, and is 
the same as at last report — amounting to ninety-five thousand two hundred and 
fifty dollars, invested as follows : $95,000 on Bonds and Mortgages, and $250 in 
Manhattan Bank Stock. 

From the foregoing statement it will be noticed, that while our actual expenses 
exceeded nearly one thousand dollars over the previous year, our nett receipts 
decreased nearly four thousand dollars since last report, and it is owing mainly 
to strict scrutiny in all applications for assistance that your Trustees have been 
enabled to meet the many increasing demands ; and they consider this an 
appropriate time to call to your notice, that ere long extraordinary efforts must 
be made to meet subsequent applications, which necessarily will be made, 
from the fact that the Department at this time numbers rising 3,500 active 
Firemen. 

The Trustees would call your earnest attention to the rapid increase in conse- 
quence of the short term of service of five years, and the necessity of a careful 
scrutiny of all applications for admission in the Department, that they be men 
of physical ability and good moral character. 

Although the Fire Department has been incorporated for over sixty years, as 
a charitable institution, nevertheless its general and more extended aid has 
been the most beneficial for the past thirteen years. During that period there 
has been expended in various charitable deeds over two hundred and twenty 
thousand dollars ($220,000), and for the few past years thirty thousand dollars 
annually have been distributed— a sum unprecedented in the affairs of any 
charitable institution in the city. When the fact, that the interest on our Per- 
manent Fund is only about six thousand dollars, it must be seen that great 
exertions must be made by its friends to sustain its heavy and increasing 
demands. Although the Department are under obligations to many for their 
exertions in its behalf, none are more deserving than the gentlemen who have 
from time to time composed the Firemen's Ball Committee—who for a period of 
nearly thirty years have enlisted themselves in aiding this truly charitable 
work. The proceeds from this source has been one, if not the greatest, reliance 
to which your Trustees have looked to sustain them. In addition to their usual 
success in a pecuniary view, there is a pride in the tone and position in which 
their Ball ranks in this city, and during the troubles of last winter they were 
enabled to receive the handsome sum of forty-seven hundred and forty-four 
dollars and ten cents. 

Your Trustees would prove recreant to their feelings if they neglected to 
acknowledge the liberal annual donation of our city authorities, which is so freely 
sanctioned by our Taxpayers ; and also for the voluntary donations from our 
City Fire Insurance Companies. It is by such generous aid that the 
custodians of your charitable fund are encouraged and sustained in the dis- 
charge of their duties. To the press of this city are we deeply indebted for 
their universal advocacy in behalf of our cause. We gratefully acknowledge 
and appreciate their powerful influence.

[t would be supposed that an institution of this kind — so noble in its purpose, 
where its means are distributed to the widows and orphans of those who have 
periled and sacrificed their lives without reward or recompense — would be 
favorably remembered by those of onr wealthy citizens who bequeathe a large 
amount to various societies, both at home and abroad ; but seldom or ever do 
we find the Fire Department Fund i-ecorded as a receiver of the bequests so 
often made to other institutions, and we trust that our appeal to the benevolent 
in behalf of our most excellent Institution will not be made in vain. 

The Committee on Fuel have distributed over 400 tons of coal during the past 
year, and have made the usual contract for the ensuing year. 

The Committee on Fines and Penalties are intrusted with the prosecution for 
the removal of violations and recovery of penalties, relative to Buildings, and 
Gunpowder Laws, and various City Ordinances Avhich have been enacted for 
the protection of the Firemen, as well also for the safety of the lives and 
property of citizens. This duty, although extremely onerous and unpleasant, 
has ever been faithfully performed, for the reasons before stated— not so much 
for the purpose of adding to the Funds of the Department, but for the security 
of our Firemen in the prosecution of their efforts in endeavoring to save 
property fi'om destruction. Previous to the year 1857, a Joint Committee, 
consisting of members of the Board of Representatives, Fire Wardens and 
Board of Trustees, were appointed to revise the present Building Law, which 
was passed in April, 1856, and was found to be deficient in several respects. 
The Committee paid great attention to the same, and prepared a law which 
was supposed to cover all cases. The same was sent to the Legislature in 
1857, but ftiiled to become a law ; owing to the late stage of the session, it only 
passed one House. Your Trustees called your attention to the subject in their 
last Annual Report, but no action has since been taken. The Trustees, deeming 
the enactment of a proper law necessary, for the aforesaid reasons— respectfully 
call your attention to the same, as well as to the propriety of placing the prose- 
cution of the same in other hands than the Trustees. The duties required are 
of such a nature, as well as the constant attention of the Committee to the 
same, and making the Department prosecutor, frequently coming in contact 
with friends and well-wishers of the Fund. For these, as well as other reasons, 
the Trustees are of the opinion that the duty of prosecuting suits of this nature 
is incompatible with the charitable duties intrusted to them to perform. They 
take this opportunity to express their views regarding the duties performed by 
the Fire Wardens, who are ever ready to execute as far as they have power, 
under the existing laws, in removing all violations reported to them ; and, in 
cases where the same are not promptly removed, it is more the fault of the law 
than any neglect on their part. 

The School Committee have faithfully performed the duties intrusted to them. 
There has been distributed to various recipients of the Fund since last report, 
1,937 pair of shoes. They also report that the Van Schaick Scholarships in 
the New York University still remain unfilled. It is a reflection on the Depart- 
ment that these valuable gifts should remain vacant, even fur a day. Applica- 
tion can be made to any of the Committee for information in regard to the 



205 

same. Sons of Active or Exempt Firemen of this city are eligible to enter ; and 
it is hoped that they will soon be filled, or else by the terms of the gift they will 
revert to the donor. 

The Foreign Insurance Companies have complied with the laws of 1857, 
excepting two of their number, which, we regret to report, object to pay the 
amount due on their premiums previous to the amendment of the Laws of 1857, 
and are now contesting in the Courts the payment of the same. The excep- 
tions are Asa Bigelow, agent for various New England Companies, and Alfred 
Pell, agent for the English Insurance Companies located in London and Liver- 
pool. 

At all times it is pleasant to call the attention of the public to the efficiency 
and respectability of the Volunteer Department, but still more gratifying, when 
the members deserve it— which can only be by a strict attention to their duties 
— respect for law and order, to encourage a kind and friendly feeling which 
should be universal in an association of men enrolled for the noble and humane, 
as well as the arduous and responsible duties intrusted to our Volunteer Firemen. 
Rowdyism and insubordination must be discountenanced and put down, no 
matter whence it may emanate ; for not only the prosperity, but the perpetuity 
of our sacred Fund depends on the effitiiency and respectability of those who 
compose the Active Department. The Chief Eagiaeer has endeavored to 
abolish the runner system, and has succeeded in stopping false alarms of fire on 
Sundays, which is to be commended, as well as those Companies who have 
aided in accomplishing this much needed reform, by their compliance with the 
orders of the Chief. 

The terms of service of Messrs. James Y. Watkins, Albert J. Delatour and 
Samuel B. Thomson, expire at the Annual Meeting. It will be necessary to 
elect three Trustees, for three years each. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

By order of the Board of Trustees, 

HENRY A. BURR, President. 
Jambs Kelly, Secretary. 

New York, December 1st, 1858.

THE NEW ARMORY, OR DOWN TOWN ARSENAL 



This edifice is situated on the corner of White and Elm streets. It is one 
hundred and thirty-one feet on White street, and eighty-four feet on Elm street. 
It is built of blue stone, only two stories high, the first being thirteen feet, and 
the second thirty feet high. The windows are very narrow, being only eighteen 
inches wide, so that in case of an assault by a mob outside, the building could be 
defended with success by fifty men. The first floor is used as a gun room and 
meeting room, the second as a drill room, and a rendezvous in case of a riot. 
The style is Gothic, and on the three cornei's of the building are situated towers ; 
there are five doors on White street, and one on Elm, which are made of boiler 
iron. It is built on piles drivep into the ground. This building is used as a re- 
ceptacle for a portion of the artillery of the first division of the New York State 
Militia. It is a very handsome building, and is constructed on the very best 
plan for defence. On the centre of the roof will be elected a large flag-staff, by 
which communication from this building and the arsenal up-town may be carried 
on by signal telegraph.

Contracts for the following Sewers were awarded November 8th ; but in 
consequence of the late period (November 30th) when they were confirmed, it 
was deemed imprudent to commence at that time their construction : they will 
be undertaken in the Spring, as soon as mason work may be prosecuted with 
safety :

THE FREE ACADEMY. 

The Free Academy of the city of New York is the first institution established 
in this State by the popular sovereignty, and maintained at the public expense 
for the purpose of extending to the pupils of the Common Schools the advan- 
tages of free education in those higher departments of learning, which cannot be 
obtained but at a considerable expense in the colleges previously established in 
this State. It was intended to be the complement of the system of free public 
schools— making them complete and available for all classes of the people, and 
by their courses of studies and means of instruction, fitted to meet the wants of 
all, from the elementary instruction of early childhood to the more various and 
profound studies in literature and science, which constitute the higher depart- 
ments of collegiate learning. 

The Board of Education of the city of New York took the first action in 
reference to the establishment of this institution, by the adoption of a resolution, 



268 

introduced by Commissioner Townsend Harris, July 27th, 1846, raising a Com- 
mittee to report upon the subject. On January 20th, 1847, a report was 
presented by said Committee, recommending the establishment of " a Free 
College or Academy,^'' and presenting its design, nature and objects in this 
language : " Your Committee will not at present enter into the details of the 
proposed institution, but will briefly remark, that their design is to offer the idea 
of a college, which, while it shall be in no way inferior to any of our colleges in 
the character, amount or value, of the information given to the pupils, the 
course of studies to be pursued will have more especial reference to the active 
duties of operative hfe, rather than those more particularly regarded as neces- 
sary for the pulpit, bar, or the medical profession." 

The report was published and considered at a meeting of the Board, held on 
the 10th of February, 1847, when a committee was appointed to draft a 
memorial in the name of the Board, to be presented to the legislature, praying, 
among other things — 

First — " That the legislature will be pleased to pass a law directing the 
regents of the University to pay over to the Board of Education, such amount of 
the literature fund as may be apportioned by them to the third, fourth, fifth and 
sixth Senate Districts of this State ; such moneys to be applied to the support 
of a free college or academy, in the city of New York, for the instruction of 
students who have been pupils in the Common Schools of the said city." 

Second — " That the legislature will further authorize the Board of Education 
in said city to call on the Supervisors from time to time, to raise by tax such 
sums as may be required for the erecting, furnishing and fitting up of said 
college or academy, and supporting the same, such sums to be notified to, and 
raised by the said Supervisors, in the same manner and under the same heading 
of taxation that the moneys for the support of Common Schools in said city are 
now raised." 

This memorial was drafted and presented to the legislature, offering, amongst 
others, the following views and purposes : — 

" One of the important objects designed to be secured by establishing a Free 
Academy, is to bring the advantages of the best education that any school in 
our country can give within the reach of all the children of the city, whose 
genius, capacity, and desire of attainments are such as to render it reasonably 
certain that they may be made, and by such means would become eminently 
useful to society ; the permanency of our free institutions, the future state of 
society, the extent to which the laws of the country will be regarded, and social 
quiet and order preserved, depend essentially upon the virtue and intelligence of 
the people." 

*• Another object of the proposed free institution is, to create an additional 
interest in, and more completely popularize the Common Schools. It is believed 
that they will be regarded with additional favor, and attended with increased 
satisfaction, when the pupils and their parents feel that the children who have 
received their primary education in these schools, can be admitted to all the 
benefits and advantages furnished by the best endowed college in the State, 
without any expense whatever. It is believed that such an institution as the 



269 

proposed Free Academy is designed to be, in addition to the great benefits it 
will confer by annually graduating a large number of highly educated young 
men, destined to pursue some of all the various pursuits of life, would stimulate 
tens of thousands, who might never enter into this academy, to additional in- 
dustry and greater advances, while in the common schools. The certainty, to a 
young man of good abilities, and desirous of making large acquisitions in knowl- 
edge, of having the opportunity of gaining as extensive an education as can be 
acquired in any institution in the State, if his parents can only furnish him the 
means to subsist at home, is, in the highest degree cheering, while the certainty 
that the limited earnings of his parents will preclude him, in the existing state 
of things, from having any such advantages, tends to repress such generous 
aspirations, paralyze effort, and prevent the full development of his ability to 
become extensively useful to the class in which his lot may be cast, or to society 
at large." 

Such were the objects presented to the legislature, to induce the passage of 
the law authorizing the establishment of the Free Academy. The people were 
promised an institution which, in the character, amount and value of the educa- 
tion imparted, should be inferior to none of our colleges, and at the same time 
should be so oi ganized that the course of studies to be pursued would tend to 
educate the pupils practically, and particularly qualify them to apply their 
learning to advance and perfect the operations of the various trades and occupa- 
tions in which they may engage ; and also, to furnish peculiar facilities for 
instruction of the highest order in various branches of knowledge omitted alto- 
gether, or not practically taught in our colleges. These views were approved 
by the Board, and concurred in by the succeeding Boards who always have 
considered the Academy as a part of the Common School system of the city, 
by which, in easy and continuous development, students may pass on, as far as 
they are able, to the higher levels of literary and scientific education — an institu- 
tion uniting in a properly progressive system the usual duties of the American 
Academy and the American College— retaining always its characteristic pecu- 
liarity of an agency of the government, in offering to all the people, equally, the 
means of educating their sons up to the point from which they respectively are 
to start in the pursuit of manhood and citizenship, and meeting the wants not 
only of those whose wealth is largely taxed to support education, but of those 
more numerous, whose aggregate taxes are still larger, and also those whose 
more slender resources are subject to no direct pecuniary tax, but who, in num- 
berless indirect exactions, contribute their full share in supporting the burdens of 
organized society. 

The act authorizing the Board to establish a Free Academy was passed May 
7th, 1847, providing, as a condition to its becoming a law, that the question 
whether such academy should be established according to its provisions, should 
be submitted to the people at the election to be held on the first Monday of 
June, 1847, and that a majority of the votes given must be in favor of the propo- 
sition. The question was so submitted, and 19,404 votes were given in favor of 
it, to 3,409 against^— leaving a majoi^ity of 15,995, 



270 



ORGANIZATION OF THE FREE ACADEMY. 

By the statute it is made the duty of the Board of Education : 

" To continue to furnish, through the Free Academy, the benefit of education, 
gratuitously, to persons who have been pupils in the Common Schools of the 
said city and county, for a period of time to be regulated by the Board of Educa- 
tion, not less than one year. 

" To supervise, manage and govern said Free Academy, and make all needful 
rules and regulations therefor ; fix the number and compensation of teachers 
and others to be employed therein ; prescribe the preliminary examination, and 
the terms and conditions on which pupils shall be received and instructed 
therein and discharged therefrom ; direct the course of studies therein, and 
provide in all things for the good government and management of the said Free 
Academy: and purchase the books, apparatus, stationery, and other things 
necessary and expedient to enable the said Free Academy to be properly and 
successfully conducted, and to keep the said building or buildings properly re- 
paired and furnished. And the Board, upon the recommendation of the faculty 
of the Free Academy, may grant the usual degrees and diplomas in the arts, 
to such persons as shall have completed a full course of study in the said Free 
Academy. 

" To appoint annually a standing committee of not less than five persons of their 
number, who shall, subject to the control, supervision and approbation of the 
said Board, constitute an Executive Committee, for the care, government and 
management of the said Free Academy, under the rules and regulations pre- 
scribed as aforesaid, whose duty it shall be to make detailed reports to the said 
Board of Education, and, among other things, to recommend the rules and reg- 
ulations which they deem necessary and proper for the said academy." 

The organization of the institution, based on the above enactments, is shown 
in the following digest of the by-laws of the Board of Education and regulations 
of the faculty. 

REQUISITES FOR ADMISSION. 

The examination of candidates for admission takes place immediately after 
the general examination, in July, and continues at the same hours every day 
until concluded. No student can be admitted to the Academy unless he resides 
in the city, be fourteen years of age, shall have attended the Common Schools in 
the city twelve months, and shall pass a good examination in 

Spelling, Algebra, as far as quadratic equations, 

Reading, inclusive, 

Writing, Geography, 

English Grammar, History of the United States, 

Arithmetic, Constitution of the United States, 

Elementary Book-keeping. 
No candidate can be examined for admission unless he shall present to the 
Principal of the Academy a certificate in the form prepared by the Executive 
Committee, signed by the Principal of the school or schools of which he has 
been a member, and specifying the age of the candidate, the common schools of 



271 

this city which he has attended, the length of time in each, and when. If the 
number qualified for admission be more than can be admitted, the preference is 
given to those who have attended the Common Schools the greater period. 

At either of the regular examinations, members may be admitted to one or all 
of the classes, to pursue the studies of any one or more departments, provided 
they shall have attended the Common Schools the requisite period — shall be of 
the proper age — shall pass the proper examination in the requisites for admis- 
sion, and also an examination satisfactory to the Faculty, in the previous studies 
of the class or departments to which they are to be admitted. 

No person is allowed to be present at the examination except the instructors 
in the Academy, and members of the Board of Education and other school offi- 
cers ; neither are the names of the candidates, nor the schools from which they 
come, made known to the instructors conducting the examinations, but each 
candidate is designated during examination by a number given to him on a card 
by the Principal. Only the names of such as have passed a good examination 
are afterwards ascertained, in order to be inscribed on the rolls of the Acad- 
emy. 

Students are not allowed to reside or board in the Academy ; they reside or 
board with their parents or guardians. By removing from the city, they forfeit 
their right to remain in the institution. 

Graduates may become resident graduates, and continue their studies at 
option. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline of the Academy is mild, persuasive and just, but steady, strict 
and unyielding. The law on this point is clear and explicit. 

"Every student," it says," shall conduct himself according to the rules of 
good manners, good morals, and manly propriety ; shall give punctual and con- 
stant attendance to all his duties ; shall use the property of the institution with 
care and economy, and restore the same when required." 

The punishments inflicted in the Academy are demerit marks, private admo- 
nition, admonition by the Principal in the presence of the Section and of the 
Instructor in the recitation room, suspension by the direction of the Principal, 
public admonition by the Principal, in presence of all the students at roll call, 
final admonition by the Principal in a meeting of the Faculty, and dismission for 
misconduct, to be directed by a vote of the Faculty. 

Every violation of the rules is recorded in the Book of Discipline , together 
with the degree of punishment inflicted, and the amount of demerits received. 
No student is demerited without receiving notice of the fact and the cause. 

Every student admitted into the Academy receives a certificate thereof, stat- 
ing, that on leaving the institution with a good character after one year, he shall 
receive another certificate or diploma, stating the period he has been in the 
Academy, and the studies there pursued by him ; and, provided he shall have 
satisfactorily accounted for all the books and other property committed to him, 
and shall have maintained a good character, he shall, on so leaving the Acade- 
my, receive such diploma ; but no student shall receive a certificate of dismis- 



272 

sion if he be dismissed for misconduct ; and, in each certificate, it shall be stated 
that he is furnished with a statement of his standing in the Academy, as it shall 
appear on the records during his whole connection with the Academy.

PORMATION OF WAEDS. 
In 1683, the city of New York was divided into six wards, under the designa- 
tions of " South," " Dock," " East," " North," " West," and " Out " Wards ; for 
map showing the boundaries of these wards, see page 212 of Manual of the Com- 
mon Council for 1848. 

The Montgomerie Charter, dated January 15th, 1730, designates in addition 
to the above, the boundaries of the " Montgomerie " Ward. 

By an act of the colonial government, passed February 28th, 1791, the wards 
are designated numerically from 1 to 7, and the bounds of each described. 

By an act of the legislature, passed March 8th, 1803, the wards are increased 
to nine, numerically designated, and boundaries described. 
The Tenth ward was erected from the Seventh, by act of March 18th, 1808. 
The Eleventh and Twelfth wards were formed, and the boundaries of all de- 
scribed, by an act passed April 25th, 1825. (Chap. 195, Laws of 1825.) 
13th ward was erected from the 10th ward, Act April 6, 1827.

COURT OF GENERAL SESSIONS. 

The Court of General Sessions of the Peace of the City of New- York was first 
called the " Court of General Q aarter Sessions," and existed under the royal 
government of Charles II., in the province of New- York. The Court was 
erected in 1683. At its outset it tried pleas, as well for the private suitor, on a 
civil side, as for the king and the people ; but, after a lapse of a centui-y, this 
power was divided, and the civil pleas were given successively to a Mayor's 
Court and the Court of Common Pleas. But as long as the former court lasted 
its judges could sit as criminal judges, concurrently, and the Court of Common 
Pleas judges are still judges of the Sessions, when certain circumstances make 
their sittings a necessity. 

Down to 1801, New York city was the principal part of the lower circuit of 
the state, in which, with the other circuits, the Attorney-General, in person 
prosecuted for the people ; and that high criminal officer sometimes made mo- 
tions in the most petty cases. In January 1796, in the General Sessions, before 
the Hon. Egbert Benson, Justice of the Supreme Court, and Eichard Varick, 
Mayor, (as appears from the minutes,) one " Charles," a negro slave, was con- 
victed of an assult and battery on Jemima Stout, his mistress, " and on mo- 
tion of Mr. Attorney-General, on behalf of the people, the prisoner was put at 
the bar for judgment. Thereupon it was considered by the court that he receive 
thirty-nine lashes on his bare back, at the public whipping-post, in the city of 
New York, between the hours of 9 and 12 o'clock in the forenoon, and ordered 
that the Sheriff of the city and county of New York cause the said judgment to 
be executed on Monday next." 

On September 17, 1785, one William Morton was fined forty shillings for pub- 
lishing an obscene book, called " Theresa ; or, Philosophy for the Ladies. 
Prisoners were hanged for robbing, and fined forty-five shillings for assault and 
battery. The kinds of crimes, and adjudications thereon, did not differ from 
those now-a-days. 

Up to 21st February, 1788, benefit of clergy existed— i. e., the plea iu capital 
felonies, of being able to read, and which was a legal relic of monkish age. The 
court minutes frequently speak, before that date, of persons who pleaded the 
" benefit," and were branded in the brawn of the left thumb with T., in open 
court and then discharged. 

Grand Jury presentments appear to have been always in vogue in the court. 
There are some five hundred regularly filed since 1784. One filed by Walter 
Bonne, foreman, January, ISl-l, indicates, at this date, the vast changes in our 
muncipal policy : " The Grand Jury beg leave to recommend to your Honor-' 
able Body the necessity of having a cistern or cisterns, to contain water at the 
respective churches and other public buildings in the city, to be suuk in such 
place or places as the Fire Department nray think proper. And the Grand 
Jurors further beg leave to read to your Honorable Body the necessity of having 
a watchman to be placed at each church having a bell — the watch to have 
access to the bell-rope, either inside or outside, in case of fire. And they recom- 



491 

mend the watchman to audibly name the place where the fire is, so that the 
word may be passed around the city." 

The earlier presentiments are quaint and dull. Some of them refer to " huts 
in lower Broadway" and " in the fields," as "resorts of negroes, drunkards, 
&c." Others relate to quarrels among neighbors, disturbing the peace, &c.,&c. 
The minutes of the court, from the first parchment record of 1683, written in 
old Dutch Flemish, down to the present time, (except a lapse of revolutionary 
trouble,) are preserved in the Clerk's office, together with all indictments, filed 
seriatim, and indexed. The minutes make over one hundred volumes, and 
there are nearly fifty thousand indictments ! 

The following gentlemen have been Clerks of the Court since 1808, when the 
General Sessions became a court of entirely criminal jurisdiction : 

John W. Wyman until 1811. 

Robert Macomb " 1813.

Mr. Vandervoort was a deputy clerk in 1830, and has, therefore, as deputy 
and principal, been twenty-seven years in office. 

Henry Meigs is the survivor, and is over eighty years of age. He still has the 
walk of youth, and was in the procession which celebrated the adoption of the 
Federal Constitution. 

The following gentlemen have been District Attorneys since the year 1801, 
when the legislature created the office — at first, for the whole circuit formed by 
New York, Suffolk, Kings, Westchester, and Richmond counties. After the 
constitution of 1822, New York with other counties, had its separate District 
Attorney.

Messrs. Maxwell, Whiting, McKeon, and Hall, are the only survivors of those 
who have filled the office of District Attorney. 

The Judges of the Court of Sessions who now survive are Messrs. Frederick 
A. Tallmadge, Francis K. Tillou, and James M. Smith, jr. (Eecorders) ; Messrs.

Since May, 1857, the Court of Special Sessions in the city of New York has 
been held by any two Police Magistrates, and the Recorder and City Judge no 
longer officiate in any court but that of General Sessions, which has had, since 
1855, jurisdiction of even capital felonies.

HISTORICAL. 



FINANCIAL HISTORY OF THE CITY OF NEW-YOEK, 

FROM THE EARLIEST PERIOD. 



BY D. T. YALENTINE. 



At a time when our city has obtained its present proportions, and boasts of 
its great memorials of the public enterprise and charities of its citizens, and on 
the other hand counts its yearly disbursements at eight millions of dollars, it is 
interesting and instructive to trace through the phases of its history from the 
dawn of its existence, and learn whence, when, and how grew up this mighty 
financial structure. 

In comparing the relative monetary affairs of the city of New Amsterdam, 
under the Dutch, with New-Yoik at the present time, it must be conceded that 
we now enjoy the enviable side of the comparison. " Upon Hendricks Hendrickse, 
the city drummer, applying for his salary, amounting to forty guilders ($16), he is 
told he must wait awhile, as there is no money in the chest at present." Such 
entries as the foregoing, which are not unfrequent in the Records of the Burgo- 
masters and Schepens, testify to a very reduced state of the treasury indeed. 
They serve as a text to matters which are appropriate to serious history, for there 
is great reason to believe that but for the financial embarrassment of the city in 
the times of the Dutch, the feehngs of the people would not have become so far 
alienated to the institutions of the fatherland, as proved to be the case in the 
surrender to the English, and the events immediately subsequent. 

The city was incorporated by the name of New Amsterdam in 1652, but the 
municipal institutions did not go into practical operation until February, 1653. 
It must be remembered that this charter was a tree barren of pecuniary fruits. 
It gave nothing but a court of municipal magistrates, with certain judicial func- 
tions, and also vested in one branch of the magistracy (the two Burgomasters) 
the general regulation of the city improvements. But no grants of franchises or 
property were made out of which a municipal fund could be derived. The 
West India Company, which was the supreme proprietary as well as govern- 
mental power, was a trading institution, and gave away nothing which it thought 
the stockholders could conveniently appropriate to themselves. 

The feud between the city and the company commenced the very year of its 
incorporation, and most unfortunately for the company, its grant of a local 
magistracy gave existence to a power which pi-ovided for the people a medium 



497 

through which their demands might be legitimately expressed. We shall see 
the results as we progress in our details of the events of the few subsequent 
years. 

In the year of the incorporation, an occurrence happened which was 
of the most serious consequences to the government and to the people. For 
some time previously misunderstandings had existed between the Dutch and the 
neighboring colonies of New- England, and the latter took occasion of the general 
war between Cromwell's government and the States of Holland, to importune 
the English Protector for the organization of an expedition against the Dutch in 
New Netherlands. This was so ordered, and the point of descent was fixed 
to be upon the capital city of the Dutch province. In the spring of 1653 
rumors of this design reached New Amsterdam, and active measures were 
taken for the defence of the city. On this important emergency, the policy of 
the West India Company exhibited itself as short-sighted. The people on emi- 
grating to this newly settled country had been promised protection against all 
enemies, and in return they gave up to the company as a monopoly many 
privileges of trade which Dutch citizens in the fatherland enjoyed. In defence 
of their homes, the people were expected, as they were indeed willing, to make 
common battle against assaults, but in the construction of works of defence, the 
provisioning of garrisons, and other measures requiring the expenditure of 
money, as well as the offering up of the person to the risks of warfare, the 
citizens justly complained that the promises of the company, to whose protection 
they had committed themselves, fell wofully short in performance, and not only 
were their habitations exposed to assault from want of outside defences, but 
the company's fort itself was little else than a trading house, short of munitions 
of war and provisions for the garrison. 

The emergency, however, as then presented, left no time for wordy ex- 
postulations, and the people set about the labor of constructing a ditch and 
embankment, with palisades extending across the northern extremity of the 
city, on the present Wall-street, and also the erection of other works of defence 
on the shores of both rivers. Money was raised by loans from the principal 
citizens, without other security than faith in the good will of the inhabitants ; 
for the government declined its assistance even in this respect. The city works 
were finished in the course of the summer, but still the enemy did not make his 
appearance, although he was daily expected, and was in fact making active 
preparations for sailing from the harbor of Boston with a formidable array of 
ships and men. 

While thus all were on the point of expectancy, and the citizens were con- 
stantly under arms along their newly constructed works, a missive from Stuy- 
vesant was received from the company's fort, calling on the Court of Burgo- 
masters and Schepens to provide means for the supply of that fortress with 
provisions ! Here the first symptoms of opposition exhibited themselves. 
The city authorities answered temperately that the town had been brought to 
great trouble and expense for the works of defence ; that trade was at a stand 
still, and they earnestly desired that the governor would not impose upon the 
burghers greater burdens than they then bore. The governor, however, 



498 

persisted in his demands, and threw upon the commonalty all the consequences 
of their refusal. Under these circumstances, the city authorities thought proper 
to call for advice upon the leading citizens, and a formal meeting of the principal 
inhabitants was held, at which it was resolved to resist the demands of the 
government, unless something were given in return, and for this purpose they 
demanded that the tapster's excise on wine and beer should be surrendered to 
the city, and resolved that otherwise they would contribute nothing towards 
provisioning the fort. The governor peremptorily refused, and excusing his 
demand on the ground that many of the citizens were individually indebted to 
the company, he threatened to sue these debtors '' even before the very Court 
of Burgomasters and Schepens, whose justice would then be put to the proof." 
Neither party would give way, and it is probable the city would have fallen an 
easy prey to the invaders had the invasion been prosecuted, but opportunely, 
just as the expedition was about to start, news arrived at Boston that peace had 
been established between Great Britain and Holland, and all belligerent orders 
were countermanded. 

The expenses of the city works were found to be about 16,000 florins, or 
$6,400 of present currency. This amount had been borrowed at an interest of 
ten per cent., and the loan was made with the understanding that it should be 
repaid with all possible dispatch. Although the city authorities did not admit 
that the burden of payment rested upon the city alone, but was incident to the 
whole province, they, for the sake of convenience, took upon themselves the duty 
of maintaining their works, and it is believed also the payment of interest on the 
debt. They again appealed to the governor for a grant of the tapster's excise, 
and with such importunity that the concession was finally made in May, 1654, 
but with the extraordinary condition that out of the proceeds of the excise the 
city authorities should first pay the salaries of the following officers, who had 
formerly been supported by the general government, viz. : one of the ministers, 
the schoolmaster, the dog-whipper (sexton), the schout (sheriff), the city magis- 
trates, and their secretary and messenger. Upon computing the balance which 
would probably stand between the excise and these salaries, it was found that 
the salaries amounted to two thirds more than it was supposed could be realized 
from the excise. But the city authorities resolved to be equal to the governor 
in financial skill, and without openly repudiating the conditions attached to the 
cession of the excise, collected the money, and somewhat to their dishonor, when 
the salaries fell due, and the ministers and other dignitaries presented them- 
selves at the city counter, they were gravely told that the money had been 
otherwise expended. Of course the govei-nor, who was (as is well known) one 
of the most self- willed characters known in all our local history, was terribly 
exasperated. 

As this excise was the first fratichise the fruits of which were enjoyed by 
our city government, it may be well here to mention that it was in those days 
a source of considerable revenue to government. Beer was the usual beverage 
at table, and supplied the place of the tea and coffee of the present day. The 
tapster's excise was paid on all beer sold by the brewers to tapsters or retailers, 
by the tun, half tun, or anker ; the amount paid on " good" beer being twenty 



499 

guilders, or eight dollars per ton, and on " small" beer six guilders, or $2 40 
per tun, and so in proportion. There was also an excise called the " Burgher's 
excise," which was laid upon beer sold to citizens by the tun or less quanity. 

We do not propose to be particular in tracing the financial vicissitudes of New 
Amsterdam subsequent to this period. It need only be said that the embarrass- 
ments of the city authorities continued during the whole of the period that the 
Dutch authority was maintained. As the lenders of the money in 1653 became 
more urgent for reimbursement, the Burgomasters brought the matter to the 
attention of the " Lords Patroons" of the West India Company in the fatherland, 
and were from time to time granted various concessions. They also still pressed 
Governor Stuyvesant, until finally, on their application for the proceeds of the 
weigh scales, in 1658, he answers that he " receives this and the like petitions 
with surprise, as it is the custom in fatherland to improve the city by tax on 
the citizens, which the Burgomasters and Schepens do not seem inclined to do, 
but still aim at the revenue and domain of the company." He then enumerates 
the various concessions and grants to the city as follows : 

" Passing by occurrences of 1652 and 1653, regarding tavern keeper's excise, 
we shall only say that since that period there has been granted to the Burgo- 
masters and Schepens : 

" First. An assessment on the inhabitants of six thousand florins ($2,400), 
which was to defray expenses of the last attack by the Indians. 

" Second. They were allowed a Burgher's excise on wine and beer, which 
was farmed last year for 4,200 florins ; this year for 3,700 florins. 

" Third. A duty on slaughtered cattle, farmed last year for 720 florins ; this 
year for 1,457 florins. 

" Fourth. A tapster's license at one pound flemish per quarter from each 
tapster. 

" Fifth. The stamping of all measures, cans, barrels, and weights. 

" Sixth. A grant of the unsold lots within the city wall. 

" Seventh. The great and small burgher recht (i. e. the feesTor making citi- 
zens of different grades). 

" Eighth. A loan for the repair of the canal, 1,000 guilders. 

" Ninth. The privilege of collecting a beaver for each house in the city, and 
a guilder yearly for each chimney, to support the flre apparatus. 

" Tenth. A tax on vacant lots. 

" However, that the city may at once be relieved of old and' new debts, he 
consents that a fourth part of the proceeds of the weigh scales shall be paid to 
the city, and hereafter, if additional revenue be required, no demand shall be 
made of the general government, but the commonalty shall be made to 
pay." 

Having thus adverted to the financial aftairs of the city during the Dutch 
administration, so far as relates to the city debt contracted in anticipation of 
war, let us tarn to the measures of ordinary municipal government during the 
same period. These, with the exception of a few salaries of the officers of the 
Court of Burgomasters and Schepens, were confined to the improvement of the 
town by the paving of a few streets. To the construction of the " schoeyinge," 



500 

or siding of boards along the river shore, and to the comparatively important 
work of constructing the " graft," or canal through Broad street. These works 
were principally done at the expense of adjoining proprietors. The first street 
paved was the " Brouwer straat," or present Stone street, between Whitehall 
and Broad streets. It was performed under the direction of overseers ap- 
pointed by the Burgomasters. The " schoeyinge" was made after a plan 
adopted by the same magistrates, each proprietor of water front making his 
share. The Heere graft, or canal through the centre of the present Broad 
street, which previously had been a ditch, was sided up with boards in the year 
1660, at an expense of about eleven hundi-ed dollars, raised partly by assess- 
ment and partly by government contribution. 

After the taking of the city by the Enghsh, in 1664, Col. Nichols proposed 
to the city authorities that as his soldiers were not at all provided with 
conveniences of living, it was necessary to quarter them in the citizen's bouses. 
To render this palatable to the burghers, he engaged to furnish the soldiers with 
provisions, and to pay for lodging money 2 guilders (80 cents) each weekly ; 
and he would moreover grant to the city government, in addition to the great 
excise, the income of the scales, and also the ferry to Long Island. Considera- 
ble reluctance was shown by the inhabitants to receive the soldiers in their 
dwellings, and the matter was compromised by a tax upon the citizens for the 
support of the soldiers, which was continued during the time of Col. Nichols' 
remaining here, which was until the year 1668. 

The policy exhibited by the English government towards this city was of an 
unusually liberal character, and tended in a great degree to reconcile the Dutch 
inhabitants to the change of rulers. Improvements were encouraged, and 
liberal grants were made to lessen the burden upon the citizens. In 1676 the 
Great Dock was constructed, extending from Broad to Whitehall streets, which 
was paid for partly by money levied by tax, but to some extent was relieved by 
charges upon vessels. In the year 1677 the city debt amoimted to one hundred 
and sixty pounds sterhng, which was finally cleared off in that year by a general 
tax. 

The arrival of Governor Dongan, in 1683, was fraught with gxeat hopes to 
the citizens. At the complimentary dinner given him by the corporation, 
he avowed that " his orders were to give and confirm to the city all their rights 
and privileges, and more if necessary." Thus invited to make known their pre- 
tensions, they first asked that their former estate and franchises be confirmed to 
them, which was readily conceded by the Governor, and certain new political 
rights were also added, upon their petition. Encouraged by this, the city 
authorities immediately made a bold proposition to this effect, that " considering 
the public works were out of repair, and the revenue that was to maintain 
them is at present lost and destroyed, they ask that the Governor will confirm 
to the city all the vacant land within the city to low water mark ; also the 
benefit of granting licenses to keepers of public houses ; the benefit of the dock, 
wharf and bridge, of the market and market house, and of the ferry now and 
hereafter to be established between this city and any other place." To this the 
Governor replied, that having so lately granted a large petition of the Mayor

and Aldermen in every particular, be is surprised at so suddenly receiving 
another. But he is willing to oblige them as far as can reasonably be done. 

Some discussion ensued, and finally resulted in the grant of the charter of 
1686, commonly called Dongan's Charter, which was one of the most liberal 
grants of municipal rights, estate and franchises, bestowed upon any city in the 
colonies. 

By it the Corporation became vested in sources of immediate income, which 
would go far to defray all the expenses of the municipal government ; and the 
other grants and franchises were of a character which increased in value with 
the progress of the city. It should be here pointed out to the casual reader, that 
subsequent charters added nothing to the rights of property of the Corporation, 
except in respect to ferry rights, which were the immediate object of the Corpo. 
ration in obtaining the charters of 1708 and 1730, as we shall see more particu- 
larly in their proper place. 

The following is a brief schedule of the grants of property and franchises by 
the Dongan Charter, 1686 : 

First. A general confirmation and grant of all former rights and privileges. 

Second. A specific grant of the City Hall, the two market houses, the bridge 
into the dock, the great dock and wharf connected therewith,* the new burial 
place,! the ferry 4 

Third. All the waste, vacant, unpatented and unappropriated lands on Man- 
hattan Island, reaching to low water mark, together with the rivers, rivulets, 
coves, creeks, ponds, waters and water courses not before granted. 

Fourth. The power to grant licenses annually to all tavern-keepers, innkeep- 
ers, ordinary-keepers, victuallers, and all pubhc sellers of any sort of liquors by 
retail, and to receive to their own use fees not exceeding thirty shillings for each 
license. 

Fifth. To make free citizens, who alone should be privileged to carry on any 
" art, trade, mystery, or manual occupation" within the city, and to receive fees 
for the same not exceeding five pounds in any one case. 

It may be proper here to refer to the method of defraying the expense of di. 
vers necessary expenditures which in modern times have formed part of the gen- 
eral burden. 

The paving of streets was, by ordinance of 1685, to be done by each owner in 
front of his own premises. 

For the construction of public wells, the inhabitants within a certain contig-u- 
ous district were compelled to contribute. 

For the support of the poor, an ordinance of 1688 required the alderman of 
each ward to send his constable around the ward to inquire what persons re- 
quired relief, who should be recommended to the mayor. The funds for relief
